What PAFMG Physicians Are Saying

Donaldo Hernandez, M.D.

CMA Immediate Past-President
CMA Member since 1985

“The  work CMA does is only possible thanks to the collective strength of our physician members. It is when we act in concert with one another and speak with one voice that we can be most effective in shaping the future of health care and building a system that works for our patients.”

Edward E. Yu, M.D.

Family Medicine
PAMF, VP of ​Population Health
CMA Member since 2000

"We physicians should take the lead to guide health care policy decisions and regulations and not defer to non-clinical administrators and politicians to define the health care system for our patients and how we work. CMA makes it easy for physicians to be involved in advocacy and I encourage you to join me in making our voices heard."

Jane Varner, M.D. 

Family Medicine
CMA Member since 2003

"If you are feeling progressively helpless and worried about the future of care delivery in California, then do something about it! Learn more about health policy, write a local legislator, comment on a resolution, donate to CALPAC...There are many ways that you can be impactful in under 5 minutes. Advocacy is the antidote to burnout!"
